Drag prepped race car in Shift 2: Unleashed

Drag is a race event type featured in a number of Need for Speed titles.

Drags races see players having to manually change gear as they race against others to the finish line along a straight track. Players will lose the event if they total their vehicle by overheating the engine, crash into an obstacle or start too early.

The player will start in a certain lane of a road, but they can change lane by tapping the steering in their desired direction. Players are encouraged to draft opponents in order to earn a short boost in acceleration.

The winner is the player that crosses the finish line first without totalling their vehicle.
